DJ D-Nice was blown away when A-listers like Michelle Obama showed up for his outrageously successful virtual dance party Friday, March 20, to Sunday, March 22.
A treasure trove of iconic celebrities, along with 100,000 other people, visited D-Nice’s Club Quarantine on Saturday, while another 160,000 folks tuned in on his Instagram page on Sunday. The sessions created such euphoria that D-Nice was chronicled in reports by the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN, and he was even interviewed by nighttime talk show host Jimmy Falon.
Club Quarantine’s success prompted D-Nice and Obama to collaborate for an online voter registration drive called “Couch Party: A Voter Registration Live Set.”

Ready for another party? Excited to team up with @MichelleObama's @WhenWeAllVote this Wed. Starting at 6:30pm ET on IG Live to play a set while volunteers across the country text eligible voters to help them register to vote. You can sign up to help too: weall.vote/couchparty
Obama also notified her 15 million Twitter fans to tune into the party that was an online collaboration with “When We All Vote,” Obama‘s voter registration initiative.
In this tough time, music can comfort us and bring us together. That’s why I can't wait for the @WhenWeAllVote #CouchParty with a featured live set from @djdnice! He’ll keep our volunteers motivated with some tunes as they help register voters.
